Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 2
It’s time to test your vocabulary again. There are 25 questions divided into four mini-tests, one for each type of question you’re asked in this component.
Firstly, let’s review the format of the Aptis Core Test. In the Aptis Core Test you have to do 50 questions in 25 minutes. The questions are divided equally between grammar and vocabulary.
The vocabulary component of the test contains 25 questions, which means you can take up to 30 seconds per question. Let’s look at the four question-types again:
As we explained in the post Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 1, our exam-style Practice Tests cover all four parts in a way very similar to the official test. In the official test they use a drop-down menu. However, we’ve chosen a slightly different format to make the exercises more directly accessible.
We’ve also decided to cover each question-type in a separate mini-test to help you focus on what you need to do. We explain each aspect in more detail before each mini-test.
What’s the best way to practise?
First go to the post Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 1, read it carefully and do the four mini-tests there. You’ll also find lots of advice on how to prepare for this component of the test. And do the extra vocabulary exercises too, such as Make or Do? or Adjective Endings ‘ed’ and ‘ing’.
What to remember while you’re doing the tests
We can’t repeat this often enough!
- Read all of the options carefully before choosing your answer
- Don’t spend too long on any of the questions. Remember, you can always come back and try it again later, both here and in the official exam.
- Always answer the question – never leave it blank.
Vocabulary Practice Test 2
As before, we’ll begin each section with a clear description and an example of each exercise type. Then it’s over to you to test your vocabulary!
Part 1: Word Pairs
In this part of the test they give you a target word in the following format: ‘big = ‘. Then you have to select (from a drop-down list) the option that has the most similar meaning to that word; in this case, ‘large’.
Part 2: Word Definitions
In this part of the test they give you a definition and you have to select a word (from the drop-down list) to match to the definition. For example, ‘to cover with paper or material is to’ … ‘wrap’.
Part 3: Word Usage
In this part of the test you have to select a word (again from a drop-down list) to complete each sentence correctly. For example, ‘The holiday company offers [ tourism / monument / sightseeing ] tours every day’. The correct answer here is ‘sightseeing‘.
Part 4: Word Combinations
Finally, in this part of the test you have to combine words that are often used together; this is called collocation. For example, we say ‘do your homework’ (not ‘make your homework’), ‘really amazing’ (not ‘very amazing’), ‘strong beer’ ( not ‘heavy beer’).
I scored everything correct and I’m happy about it. I would like to continue with the tests.
That’s great, Adeola – well done! Some of the questions were quite tricky! We’ll be posting another one soon – meanwhile, why not try the teachers’ tests too? The only difference is that the content is more based on education. It’s all good practice! Here’s the first one: http://www.aptistutor.com/aptis-for-teachers-vocabulary-test-1/

Hi there, Md. Moynal haque – thanks for your comment! 👍🏻😘
It’s really fantastic but it would be better to have the correction.
Hi again, Mazharul – thanks! I’m afraid we’re having some problems with the site at the moment, sorry. We’re working hard to fix it. Are you on a mobile or tablet? The tests seem to work on a desktop, so try that. You could also try some of the exercises in other formats – have a look here: https://www.aptistutor.com/5-minute-aptis-practice-core-test.
I’ll also post the answers soon, so you can correct your work.
Still having problems with the site, and the tests aren’t working correctly on a mobile or tablet. They ARE working on a desktop computer, if you have access to one.Meanwhile, here are the answers to the Test 2 that you did:
I’ve just realised that the test was a duplicate of Test 1, so have changed it. There is now a new Test 2, and these are the answers (but don’t look until you’ve tried the new Test 2!!
